A Star Studded Centerpiece

Happy Wednesday to you, and welcome back to the "party"
All month long we have been celebrating cuttlebug challenge blogs 1st birthday with a themed party that keeps getting better week after week!
I want to start by sharing my party favor with you, I decided after weeks of painful deliberation* grin* to make a CD sleeve for the party guests to skip along home with. To see the complete tutorial visit this post at cuttlebug challange. they are so easy a cave girl could do it! :) Now about that centerpiece I promised you...I had so much fun with this and those dangley stars were so speedy quick I had to stop myself from making dozens! {its cheaper than therapy} at least that's what I keep telling my hubby...although hes starting to catch on that it probably isn't! hehe
The movie reels were made out of two sheets of silver card stock, and I traced a downloaded pattern to get the shape just right. Being the "green wannabe" crafter that I am, I'm pleased to find a use for those ever growing stacks of toilet paper rolls,they have a new life as the spool of my reels. An "old" roll of film was cut in half and rolled up on them. I love the way they came out!


This clapboard was inspired by a plastic version I spotted at a local party store, I just had to try an all paper and customized one for my "chelseawood" red carpet event. This was a labor of love and not for the timid...even with lots of effort it still turned out a little wonky....but if you know me, you know I don't believe in "rules" or "mistakes" and its still cute as can be askew letters and all!
Sure hope you like it...and let me know if you do, Its good for my self esteem *wink*
